Use a Second Router to Extend Your WiFi Range, No Cables Required

This is part of series: dd-wrt repeater bridge

AwhileRepeater Bridge Network Diagram back, I was given a router.  There was already a router at my house, so I started playing with it.  I replaced the default software on it with DD-WRT, an open-source router firmware that gives any supported router features that are typical of much more expensive ones.

Several months later, I moved to my grandparents’ house.  My desktop didn’t have a Wi-Fi card in it, and it would’ve been inconvenient and expensive to buy network cables, drill holes through a few walls, and run the cables from the main router to my computer.

Then I thought to myself, what if I could use my router as a Wi-Fi card?  It turns out that I could, and you can too.
